State Fair Muskies

10 posts in this topic

Anyone know of any fishing/muskie booths at the fair. I know the DNR has their pond and building but didn't know if Reeds or Muskies Inc or anyone like that had areas. Headed there on Wednesday and was curious.

the DNR area is all there is. Sorry.

there is a booth in the diary building that is selling various fishing accessories. but nothing out of the ordinary or exemplary.

sorta shocking based on fishing and MN going hand in hand...

We've thought about having an MI booth in the past, but the problem comes when you try to man it. A week and a half of long days is pretty tough to get volunteers for.

I did notice there was a small selection of fishing gear at one of the boat displays. I'm not sure what type of gear they had, I didn't go look, but I do know there were some rods at a minimum.

I thought CH 54 was going to be at the ponds doing a release talk?

Chapter 54 was there all day yesterday with a few Mounts and sore throats when we left, it was a good day, unfortunately the P.A. system was not available at the pond so we did everything from the stage, which sucks....

We talked about the resource, Muskies Inc, safety, getting kids involved and DCMusky spent some time on baits and techniques, I'm not sure if he explained the how to catch 50# Muskie tactics..LOL he looked at me kinda funny when I told a guy about it eek

I'll see about getting a chapter there with a table and info every day or every other day next year..

Have some fun with it.....

Raise some money...get a DUNK tank..put some of the overbearing knowitalls of the muskie world in it...some good guys / gals also...$5 a ball...regular fishers an people with big smiles can fire round after round and drop them into the slop donated from a street sweeper or some cold used grease from the cheese curd booth.

smile

The addition of the big school of Crappies & sunnies has been fun to watch.

Lil tiny muskie fish also fun to watch...kids as well adults enjoy it all.

smile

Yup...lil info about da fish, handling an so on..... but DUNK TANK for sure!!!

    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
    •   Unfortunately, we just don't know when that will be (injury, free agency, etc.), and by the time they wind down someone else will have already taken their place. More to the point, we need to get to the dance a few times before we will be a threat to the likes of GS, or anyone else for that matter. Get these young guys some playoff experience, continue to build, and add pieces wherever and whenever we can. Keep moving ahead, that's all we can do. It's a cliche, but we can't control what other teams do...only what we do, and I think we are making good decisions with players and personnel lately.
